Q - Do you have any stories or memories of Lacy you could share for us?
Back in '87, while on the first Tribute Tour, I sat down at breakfast in San Francisco with Lacy. I turned on my video camera and let it roll. Some of you have likely seen that video...someone I gave a copy to for Christmas that year decided to make several copies and now they're for sale everywhere. Anyhow...the point is, if you watch this video you can learn pretty much everything about Lacy you would care to know about who he is.
To complete the picture, I can tell you that Ronnie was cut out of the same mold. Both were story-tellers of the highest caliber! Always amazed me how he could start with one story...take a dozen detours and tangents in an hour's time...and always come back to where he started and tie all the stories together! I always enjoyed my visits with Lacy.
When I wrote the lyrics to the bridge in "Born To Run", I had Lacy in mind.
shaw: I wonder if Zap is around.I found a guitar someone was throwing out and it has Zapp on the headstock. Turns out its one of those Law Suit era Les Pauls. I'm putting it back together it was only the body & neck, with no hardware but I got all the parts now.

Zap: No relation to me, LOL, but you can gift it to me when you are done restoring it if you like! LOL!
